Cubicfarm begins selling control room

Mr. Dave Dinesen reports

CUBICFARMS LEVERAGES ITS EXPERTISE IN CONTROLLED-ENVIRONMENT AGRICULTURE AND ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF NEW CONTROL ROOM SYSTEM AND SALE TO CAREER FIELD FARMER AND ENTREPRENEUR

Cubicfarm Systems Corp. has launched its new control room system for sale to growers looking to grow crops more efficiently by controlling every aspect of the growing environment.

Cubicfarm's control room is assembled inside its proprietary stainless steel, fully insulated growing chamber with the option to customize features such as lighting, automated irrigation and nutrient delivery, and full climate control for temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide levels. The system has a variety of sensors available, all of which can be remotely monitored and controlled.

The control room enables growers to have complete control over the growing environment that is so crucial for high yields and quality -- a capability especially well suited for research and development purposes. The temperature, humidity, lighting and air flow can be properly calibrated to suit crop requirements.

"We are pleased to launch a new product that allows growers to conduct their own growing trials inside a controlled environment chamber. We've had numerous inquiries for this kind of solution and are pleased to be able to support our customers with this technology. We see good market potential for this solution that helps growers fine-tune the optimal environmental parameters for growing crops indoors," commented Cubicfarm's chief executive officer Dave Dinesen.

"We are confident that once growers experience the consistency and quality of yields achieved in the control room, they will seek to automate growing inside our fresh produce system, which is essentially the control room plus motorized rows of trays containing crops that follow a patented path inside the chamber to ensure all sides of the crop are evenly bathed in light to maximize growth."

Cubicfarm's control rooms can be placed inside an existing warehouse or greenhouse to serve as controlled environment growing chambers to test and develop crop varieties. They can also be placed outside in many environments. It is well suited for many types of growers, including:

  • Greenhouse growers and vertical farmers who have a need to hold larger plants in an environment separate from their existing facility. As an example, a hemp grower who would like to hold the mother plant used for cloning in an ideal environment;
  • Growers in the floral or nursery industry who need to hold plants or bulbs at a specific temperature or humidity;
  • Growers undertaking research activities that require different environmental controls than their typical growing space.

Cubicfarm announces first sale and installation of control rooms to British Columbia-based field farmer and food entrepreneur

The company is pleased to announce that it has sold three control rooms to a customer in British Columbia. The control rooms were recently installed at the customer's site. The customer, an experienced field farmer and consumer packaged foods expert, plans to engage in controlled environment growing trials of various crops that have traditionally been grown in the field. Mr. Dinesen added: "I'm very excited that Cubicfarm can support our customers by leveraging technology we already have, but in this unique way. Our customers never cease to amaze me in how creative and inspiring they are when looking to grow their businesses."
